Robin Winkler Clinic
Treating psychological and neuropsychological difficulties in the community
The Robin Winkler Clinic provides individual and group psychological treatment and neuropsychological assessment for people of all ages and backgrounds. The clinic is linked with the School of Psychological Sciences at The University of Western Australia. At the clinic, provisionally registered postgraduate students undergoing their training in clinical psychology and clinical neuropsychology, carry out assessment and treatment under the expert supervision of experienced clinical psychologists and clinical neuropsychologists.
The clinic also provides paediatric and adult neuropsychological assessments. Children and adults with known or suspected cognitive, attentional or learning difficulties resulting from trauma, disease or genetic conditions can be referred for a comprehensive neuropsychological assessment.
Assessments are conducted by postgraduate clinical neuropsychology trainees who are trained in understanding how the brain works and how it affects our behaviour, thinking and personality. A wide range of activities are used to assess an individual’s specific skills, including concentration, memory, language and problem solving, and level of academic functioning and their learning profile. Assessments can cover several activities such as answering questions, remembering certain information and writing things down.
A variety of group therapy programs are run throughout the year. The programs use the latest research in a supportive environment to help individuals overcome life challenges. Group therapy options include a worry management group, a blood injury and injection phobia group and the Cool Kids anxiety group.
